I would not recommend this book for kids under 12, because of violence and themes that may be disturbing to younger kids (child abuse, animal abuse). I read this book because it was one of the 2015/16 nominees for the Minnesota Maud Hart Lovelace book awards (for the 6th-8th grade age group). The book keeps you eagerly reading because it has mystery and suspense in it, but the story is also heartfelt and bittersweet with well-developed characters. Highly recommend for kids ages 12-16 (especially boys). (Review written by a mom)

"Believing that the man dating his widowed mother is a disreputable person, 12-year-old Foster bonds with a mysterious Iraq War veteran who imparts wisdom and secrets before exposing threatening character qualities that escalate into a violent personal clash."
